    Expected better after reading reviews…masa for the empanada undercooked as were my $30 prawns. Crappy knife could barely cut through the prawns. Bread with the prawns nothing special. A spoon given us with our sorbet was coated with black on the back…fish scales? Just disgusting. Cocktails were good. Service was good.

    Our server was great and our first tapas dish (Brussel sprouts) was excellent but from there, our food was awful. Soup dumplings were inedible and we sent them back. In retrospect, we should have left at that point. However, we thought it was a one off. Still, shrimp tapas was over cooked. The Paella was not Paella: the chicken and chorizo were dry, the rice was over cooked, the shrimp were inconsistently cooked and the mussels were inedible. Our branzino was overcooked and unflavorful but by that point, we were so desperately hungry, we ate it anyway. Highly disappointed by the food quality, especially for the reputation and price point. The shift manager did adjust our tab to account for the poor food quality but it's inexcusable to allow such food quality out of the kitchen. Highly disappointed.

    Seemed like they couldn’t find our reservation. Then after we were seated we had to ask to be served, not sure if they were short staffed or something. When our server did arrive, she seemed like she wasn’t really happy serving another table. There was also a large group of people sat at the bar near our table, who dragged more bar stools around to create a make shift table for them selves. The whole of the rest of the bar was empty so it was really frustrating to have such a loud group there. We have eaten here a few times and really enjoyed the service and food. But this was a disappointment. We were there to celebrate a retirement.

    Food was awesome as usual. This is my wife's favorite place in Steamboat. Short ribs were great as well as the croquette's. After 5 app's, 3 entree's and 3 deserts there was not an average dish in the mix. Everything was Awesome!

    Food was much better than what we expected. The only disappointment was the burger. The hamburger had great flavors, but was sloppy wet making the brad desintegraré in the hands. Soggy Bread is never good.

    This is my most favorite restaurant in Steamboat Springs! Perfect for special occasions. The food and drinks have been consistently delicious for all of the years it has been open. It is so easy to have favorite dishes, especially from the tapas menu, but it is worth sampling a bit of everything over time. What we love is that Bésame strikes a great balance for all diners. We have come with just an adult group and have loved our food and service AND we have brought our children and they enjoy great choices from the children's menu. Just a wonderful experience!

    Service and atmosphere was good. Prices were a little high for the quality of food. We ordered several tapas, two entrees and two desserts. The octopus was OK, prawns were good, and the empanada was very good. My wagyu Carne asada was mediocre, it's hard for me to believe it was wagyu. Desserts were alright, nothing special

    We went to Besame with friends for dinner. We ordered 8 small plates to share between four of us then two desserts. The food was excellent. I would suggest if you plan to order several tapas as your meal that you don’t order them all at once. While they told us they would deliver the food as it was ready, we ended up with a table full of plates and not enough room for everything. The whole thing felt a little rushed as we tried to clear room for the new deliveries of food.

    We went to Besame the first year it opened and weren't thrilled with it. However, we had been hearing such good things about it the last few years we decided to give it another try. The only thing I can say is why did we wait so long. It was fantastic! There were six of us and we had a combination of hot tapas (short ribs, empanadas, shrimp, bread, and mussels) and entrees (arroz con pollo, picadillo and cochinito pibil). The food was delicious, and the service was very good. We can't wait to go back to try other things.

    Great restaurant in downtown steamboat. Fun energy and knowledgeable server. Sofia cocktail- bartender does a cigarillo sugar rim- incredibly witty and executed one of the most balanced cocktails I’ve ever had. Salmon ceviche fabulous with plantain chips. Soup dumplings- some of the best we’ve ever had. Big and plump like little flavor bombs. Camarones: the dish is served like a bouillabaisse. Giant prawns. Broth was awesome- lapped it all up with toast points however the prawns were just a bit overdone and had a bit of a mushy feel. Short rib tapa was also just a bit tough- not quite as buttery as we’d like but the flavor profile of the dish was on par. Chamomile tea and choco taco. Do not leave without the choco taco. Whoever put micro cilantro on the top is a genius- random and unexpecting yet wow’d me. The restaurant was busy but not loud. The ambiance was rustic with beautiful strings of lights, bulbs and chandeliers. Will return. Will tell others. Nicely done.
